Foreword by Lanny McDonald.

NHL hockey is a game of shared memories that can bind a family, a city or an entire country. Each era has them, individual moments that become etched on the collective consciousness from the time they occur and passed down through generations. The greatest of these memories are caught on film and become all the richer for it.

In the hockey universe, the single-most important repository of memories is the Hockey Hall of Fame, where, along with the artifacts and memorabilia, are more than 3 three million images that have been amassed over the decades and safeguarded as a national treasure. The Hall's Photographic Collection includes nearly 1000 glass plate negatives and thousands of original photos, many of which have never been published or seen -- until now.

A Century of NHL® Memories celebrates the league's centennial by throwing open the doors to the Hall of Fame's photo archives and unveiling some of its treasures. Snapped by legends of photojournalism like Lou and Nat Turofsky and Frank Prazak, and selected for their beauty and originality, or both, these 130 or so photos cast hockey's heroes in a different light, take you into the heart of the action or reveal as much about the charm of an era as the game on the ice. Some will teach you something you didn't already know. Others will make you smile.

Delving into the Hockey Hall of Fame's collection was a dream come true for the hockey fans that published A Century of NHL® Memories; a rare privilege indeed. The biggest challenge, ultimately, was making the final selection from among so many great photos.

Enjoy the memories.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for all hockey fans even Les Canadiens I have been a hockey fan all my life, and although I have a preferred team, I like all things hockey. This book feels like a collaboration between the photographers of National Geographic and the National Hockey League. One note- this book might not be great for younger fans, since there is little recent content.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice Quality Book I bought this book as a gift for a big hockey fan. I can't say that much about because it's a gift so I didn't open the shrink wrap, but it's a nice quality, thick hardcover. The online price seems like a great bargain. #plumreview
